The In Position m7b5 Arpeggio

The In Position m7b5 Arpeggio

We’ll be covering all 4 fingerings of the Bm7b5 arpeggio today

When you stack another 3rd on top of a dim triad in a major scale, you get an m7b5 chord.

Bm7b5 is chord VII in the key of C.
The 7th scale degree in a major scale is an m7b5 chord. The triad on VII is Bdim, the 4-note chord is Bm7b5

We covered the in position diminished arpeggio here:

The Bdim Arpeggios In Position

We are just adding 1 note to those Bdim fingerings: the note A, to make it a Bm7b5 arpeggio.
This gives following Bm7b5 arpeggios:


Jam with these fingerings till complete memorization.

A fun way to practice these arpeggios is over a G7 1-chord groove backing track.
The notes in a Bm7b5 chord are: B D F A
The notes in a G7 chord are G B D F
The A note in the Bm7b5 arpeggio creates a G9 sound played over the G7 chord.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
